BlueCut micro-Joule and Orange femtosecond fibre lasers

The Menlo Systems BlueCut femtosecond laser enables fast and efficient processing at low cost of ownership. With its femtosecond burst mode feature and repetition rate ranging from single-shot to 10MHz the user can be sure to achieve maximum efficiency and ablation rates for your process. In addition to that, fast external tuneability of the pulse energy allows processing with constant fluence across the part, even with changing spot overlap.

The new release of the laser provides <400fs with 10µJ pulse energies and up to 10W average power. With a very small heat affected zone, precision and clean processing is a provided for a wide range of materials. To increase flexibility and enhance efficiency and resolution, Menlo now also offer optionally a frequency-doubled output at 515nm.

Based on our proven all-fibre integrated technology, the BlueCut micro-Joule femtosecond laser from Menlo Systems offers superior robustness and reliability. It is designed for industrial and scientific micro processing, serving applications in the semiconductor or biomedical industries for example.

With its simple user interface the BlueCut is ideal for OEM integration. Its unique combination of compact form factor, air-cooled laser head and high mechanical stability provides an unprecedented level of stability during 24/7 operation.

Menlo has also extended its range of Yb femtosecond fibre lasers, built on the company’s figure 9 mode locking technology, with its new Orange. It has been designed to provide average powers of up to 10W and pulse energies of up to 200nJ with typical pulse durations of 130fs, for pumping OPOs and OPAs.

In addition, we offer optionally an SHG stage and repetition rate synchronization capability for lowest jitter performance. The very high peak power makes Menlo Systems’ orange lasers the goto solutions for multi-photon microscopy, two-photon polymerization, and time-resolved spectroscopy.
